Clothing for size 22+

Posted in Plus Size Fashion
on November 30, 2015

Happy Monday!

Today I found myself trying on some of my winter clothes from last season. During Winter 14/15, I was a size 20 in bottoms. This morning I found out, that I was a size 20-24 in pants…depending where I bought them and the material they are made of. So today, I decided to write a post for any ladies who are tired of forcing the “jean dance” and have to size up beyond the typically offerings of 12-22/24 at most plus size stores.

Side note: I am not really a fan of the word “Extended Sizes”. I don’t get it…

Pssst: Make sure you check out all these designer’s Sizing Charts before you are purchasing. A 5x isn’t the same everywhere.

Catherines

Today with more than 400 locations nationwide, along with catherines.com, the Catherines brand continues to fulfill its promise to women everywhere as the fashion and fit authority for sizes 16W-34W and 0X-5X.

Over the past month or so, I’ve found a growing amount of brands that are offering lingerie to plus size consumers. And why not, we all deserve to feel beautiful in our skin. Whether we’re  bundled up in a burka or stripped down to our bra…everyone has a comfort level of sexy. Here are my top 4 retailers who are taking my type of sexy to the next level!

Lane Bryant– This past weekend while I was in NY, I went to Lane Bryant and binged on a few sexy items!

Rebdolls– With their sizing going as high as a size 24, I definitely took advantage of a Baroque styled piece or two.
